DISCLOSURE: I was provided with complimentary product samples to facilitate this post, however all opinions and experiences are my own.
Besides Fall, Spring is my very favorite time of year. The chill is gone from the air, the temps were in the low 70's over the weekend and the buttercups have already started blooming here in Tennessee, so I know Spring is right around the corner.
You know what else that means?! It means somewhere, in the US, you will find a Mom, making some kind of "Springy" craft with their kid(s). Be it something involving eggs, grass, yellow tissue paper tulips or cotton ball bunnies. I can promise you, someone, somewhere, is doing a Spring craft and why shouldn't they, March is National Craft Month.
I make no secret of my total lack of craftiness. I have compared my crafting skills to that of a cracked out Martha Stewart, but that surely doesn't deter me from trying. Some of my fondest memories, as a kid, are of doing fun, messy crafts, with my Mom and I want Micah to have those same memories.
In an effort to keep things simple, I looked online for a pre-assembled, fool proof craft, that even a boy would enjoy doing and I found this adorable little D.I.Y. Bug Box kit from Oriental Trading Company, for only $3.50. The kit comes with 6 bug boxes, that you can paint and customize any way you like. (Paint not included, you could use markers, if necessary)
Micah and I chose to keep it simple and use the picture from the website as a guide (we copied it exactly). You, however may be a little more creative, but if you're "craft challenged", like me, no worries, Oriental Trading Company has 1000's of crafting products, for $1 or less, so if you mess up, no biggie and in honor of National Craft Month, they are offering $3.99 flat rate shipping through March 31st, with code ACMAR14.
I had so much fun making this fun little project, with Micah, I decided to try a few more, so keep your eyes peeled for next week's craft post, with more awesome goodies from Oriental Trading Co. Here's a sneak preview... any guesses?!
